photoshop fun
s the year draws to a close, it's natural to reflect on one's achievements and failures through the year, while looking toward self-improvement for the coming year and do some sort of LJ meme. Luckily for you, this isn't one of those entries. I know, it was a close one.

No, the point of this entry is to revisit the previous year in a manner that will hopefully provide you some lulz. On occasion, I've been known to make off-the-cuff (and usually pretty bad) Photoshop/MS Paint jokes for a comment in other people's journals. Over the course of the past year, I've been hosting these in LJ Scrapbook and tagging them so that I can keep track of them. Since they occurred in other people's journals by-and-large, I thought it'd be fun to post them all in my journal. Most of these appeared in the comments of welfy's journal, but there are a few from others.

As an introduction for the one's I have done in Welf's journal, I should point-out that there's a running joke within the jokes. There's a photo of Welf trying on a dress in a thrift shop which has come to be dubbed "The Church Lady". I find the photo so funny that almost anytime I do a photo-joke at Welf's expense, I use this photo. As a point of reference, here's the original, untouched picture.

I don't remember exactly why I made this. The gist of the sentiment is that Welf's journal has gone to hell.

A Public Service Announcement

The Outsiders series which follows was a combination of me and Welf. The story goes like this: she wrote an entry about her brother with some old childhood photos and wishing him a happy birthday. She ended the entry with something to the effect of, stay gold, like Ponyboy. Naturally, I commented with...

...to which she responded with....

...to which I responded with...

....to which Welf responded with, "Greaser? You hardly even know her!" And I responded with one final Outsiders joke.

Not all of them were for Welf's journal, though. Here's a simple one I did for lossfound. It's a long story involving the Ikea website's virtual assistant.

I don't remember where I posted this one or why. I think it had something to do with someone saying redheads are hawt.

The following picture is of ladydreamfire from the SHOW US YOUR GAMS summer. Someone pointed out that the thing she's standing beside looked like a land speeder.

My pal obscurek owns an Asian food store that also dabbles in other Asian items. He was musing about Qipao dresses in an entry.

I also suggested the following sign should be posted in the window of obscurek's shop, where he was also offering knitting lessons.

This next one might be offensive to some. To be fair, I can't take credit for the original humor involved, it was found somewhere on the internets. My pal tpbrcombo was lamenting on how awful the photo for his intranet profile at work looked. The words he used to describe it was that he looked retarded, so I photoshopped him into the existing humor and added his Super Tard name.

This one also came from tpbrcombo's journal. He had acquired a fake mustache kit and was trying on a different mustache each day and taking a photo. Each mustache style had a name. One of them was "The Hero" and he took a rather man-of-action pose for the photo. The following photoshop resulted.

I'm sure they're not all as funny (if they ever were that funny) devoid of their original context, but hopefully that wasn't too painful to endure.

Oh buddy, oh. You have too much time on your hands. But I have to admit they were greatly neat. I enjoy little Photoshop edits so this was good when I needed some laughs today.

I think you should offer a cash prize to the first person who can identify which tard is tpbrcombo. It could take a while.

Your Anna picture I remember. It captured the sadness of the time really well.

Time On Her Hands. I think you should get arrested and front internet court for that one. Hire a really decent attorney-at-lulz, too.

I think my money would be safe.

Speaking of lossfound, I remembered after posting this entry that I failed to include one of my favorites from the year. Not sure if you ever saw it or not.

I do remember that one! That was from my gams entry, which I think he alleged startled his delicate demeanour. Nicely executed, and in lossfound's signature style, no visible means of support for the cigarette.

Oh, well then it comes full circle then. I couldn't for the life of me remember where I had used that, only that it had been in response to his shock over something. In this case, it's certianly understandable and justified.

I've always thought that the dangling cigarette was keeping-with the fine cartooning tradition of guys like Andy Capp and Steve Dallas.

A cursory glance through any physics book will tell you that there is a difference between "dangling" and "mysterious eerie hovering", brother.


(Deleted comment)
That's great! Did one of yours draw that or did you find that somewhere?

You worry me old boy, you worry me. You almost make me giggle. Make me feel so bad laughing at the Super Tard picture (btw...speaking of have you seen The Ringer? so wrong...so funny...be careful of who you watch it with). I couldn't stop giggling at all the Welf pics. Lol..they are actually quite funny. Why do we want to stop System of a Down?

I have seen the Ringer. That was a really funny movie.

Some entry Welf had made mentioned Smokey the Bear and in the "Current Music" she had System of a Down in it. It was just an inspired moment.


Actually, I'm getting better. I was kinda proud of those two I did of our boy Pablo. Usually though I'm just in a hurry and making it so obviously bad is half the joke.

I really should do some edits of that church lady photo since I use it so much. Have the head nice and cleanly decapitated for future use, as well as a full-body one devoid of background.

Oh, not showing off! Just getting in on the gag.

If I wanted to show off, I would present the reason why he and I should never have children...

The gene pool doesn't need that.

How I wish you'd stop replaying that image on teh Internets.

just ask the vicodin.

You guys are retarded.

In other news, I'm a cripple.


Re: just ask the vicodin.

Oh lawd. What've you gone and done now?

i do not remember the ANNA pic at all. are you sure that wasn't a director's outtake?

It was waaaaaay back in February. :)

Re: with a rebel yell?

oh yeah. that was a good one. :)

i really ought to start making those 'toons again.
